Win a Beko Steam Generator Iron

Win a Beko Steam Generator Iron

A little while ago I reviewed the fantastic Beko Steam Generator Iron. I am never going to enjoy ironing but, if there is something that can make ironing easier and more efficient, I am all for it. The Beko Steam Generator Iron will certainly help you get through that pile of laundry a whole lot quicker and it is great value for money.

Here is a quick run down of the brilliant features:

  • SteamXtra – This helps to protect your fabric while ironing out even the most stubborn of creases. The plate injects steam at ‘criss-cross’ angles deeply into your garments.
  • Continuous Steam tackles even the most stubborn of creases.
  • Digital Display- This lets you know everything from when to descale to when water levels are low.
  • Smart Mode – This automatically selects the best settings for your fabrics, for when you’re not sure which temperature and steam intensity would give you the best results.
  • Compact Size – You can place the station anywhere you like, even on your ironing board. As well as being compact it is also much quieter

You can check out our full review and Top 5 Ironing hacks here.

The Beko Steam Generator Iron

We have been using our iron for several weeks now and, while I do not think I will ever iron more than I need to, it has definitely made things quicker and easier. It sails through smoothing even the most wrinkled of fabrics with no trouble. With daddy being a teacher and Biggest starting school this September, I will have a weekly pile of shirts and uniforms to keep crease-free. I am very thankful that I will I have the steam generator to help.

    My top tip would be to iron your clothes whilst their slightly damp helps with thise stubborn creases

    Hang creased clothes in the bathroom when you are taking a dip or having a shower. The steam will help wrinkles drop out.

    Always hang your clothes up especially if wet and it will reduce the amount of creases 😀 if all else fails get someone else haha

    Don’t leave it until you have a huge pile …..so much easier if you can do it in short bursts.

    Hang washing as flat and stretched as possible to dry, and don’t iron anything unless it really needs it.

  11. Ann Gwillim

    Only iron when there is something good on the telly as watching a good film takes your mind of the boring job.

    Not really a hack per se…but I generally get my husband to do it…

    use a tiny drop of fabric softener in your iron water fab results every time xx

    A little bit of ironing each day stops everything becoming too overwhelming.

  19. Karen Barrett

    I always fold my washing that needs ironing neatly when I bring it in off the line, it then goes into a storage box in the kitchen cupboard, when I can’t get the lid on I know it is time to iron!

  20. pete c

    hang things up as soon as ironed to minimise creases etc

  22. Chris S

    I don’t know whether this counts as a hack but mine would be to try to iron every day – don’t let it build up because it can seem so overwhelming if you gave to tackle a huge pile. So much easier to do a small amount every day.

    Don’t let it pile up! Use a powerful steam generating iron, it is so much quicker and easier than using a normal steam iron.

  31. Jayne Townson

    To iron them as soon as they come off the washing line, as it’s much quicker. Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    I’m not really found any hacks for ironing. My only advice would be, only iron what you need to (IMO you don’t need to iron pants, or bed sheets, etc).

  34. Michelle smith

  36. Susan Smith
    28th June 2017 / 9:36 pm

    Dont let it pile up like i do, it becomes more of a chore, when you eventually get round to it, set the ironing board up in fornt of the Tv, and watch a film while doing the ironing

  38. Kayleigh Watkins

    I use fabric softener and empty the tumble dryer straight away so the clothes aren’t to creased, also don’t let your partner iron as he burned stuff onto mine so I now have to iron our children’s clothes inside out as it leaves black marks xxx

  39. Hazel Christopher
    28th June 2017 / 10:34 pm

    Do little and often rather than face the ironing pile mountain once in a blue moon! You’re more likely to put it off if you let it the pilce grow.

    I like to use my iron for different things other than ‘ironing clothes’ 😉 One tip is to use it as a laminator press by putting it on the cotton setting and ironing a pouch and whatever you want to laminate inside a t-shirt 😉

  47. Tony Metcalfe
    29th June 2017 / 11:25 am

    Put an ice cube in your tumble dryer
    Sounds crazy but the hard objects help knock out the wrinkles and when they
    melt, the added steam does the rest.

    Whether you are transferring clothes from machine to tumble dryer, onto a
    radiator rack on a line, shake it out first as it lessens wrinkles

  51. Debbie W
    29th June 2017 / 2:18 pm

    Line dry where possible to reduce creases and fold clothes after drying. The better they are folded the fewer the creases generally. Even if you are drying clothes on the radiators, if you fold them up before putting them on the radiator there are less creases and it is much easier to iron.

  52. Alica
    29th June 2017 / 2:27 pm

    Do it while you’re watching TV. Also don’t let it pile up, because it can seem really overwhelming when you have to do all of the ironing at once.

  53. Tasha
    29th June 2017 / 2:40 pm

    When drying clothes avoid scrunching them up to reduce creases

  54. Jo Jones
    29th June 2017 / 4:22 pm

    I always give the clothes a good shake before pegging out & this seems to minimise the amount of ironing required.

  55. Jordan Jarmain

  62. Stephanie Coals
    30th June 2017 / 2:08 pm

    Iron double-thickness fabric on the inside first and then do the outside

  63. 30th June 2017 / 2:33 pm

    Descale your iron regularly, you get more steam that way and don’t get irritating bits of limescale on your clothes

  64. Rich Tyler

  83. Judith Allen
    2nd July 2017 / 5:02 pm

    I don’t have an ironing hack, I never liked it, rarely did it. Buy fabrics that don’t need it, crinkly is good! My partner regretted the one time she asked me to iron some trousers for her as she was in a hurry. Didn’t turn out well, instead of steam I tipped water all over them. Oops.

  84. Rebecca Nisbet
    2nd July 2017 / 9:07 pm

    Pay someone to do it, although my other half said we cant justify that expense so i have to do it myself. Just keep on top of it, if you get behind its a dread!

  90. Fiona jk42
    3rd July 2017 / 12:55 pm

    I always smooth out shirts as much as possible while still damp and hang inside out on hangers to dry. This minimises creases and also ensures I don’t get those annoying lumps at the shoulders when the shirts are turned right side out.

  91. Ashley Phillips
    3rd July 2017 / 8:28 pm

    I always hang all my washing straight from the machine, if it’s wet out I hang it from my curtain poles. Drops most of the creases out and makes ironing so much easier

  92. Victoria Thurgood

  120. Arabella Bazley
    18th July 2017 / 6:25 am

    I love the steam generators, my mother has one and they really make a huge difference over a regular iron, much faster. My top hack is don’t wiggle the iron around, especially when ironing fiddly items like shirts and blouses as you can stretch and distort the fabric slightly which makes it harder to get collars and cuffs to sit nicely.

  121. Ashley Valentine

  122. Christine Lockley
    18th July 2017 / 4:40 pm

    Iron while washing is till slightly damp, if it’s too dry it’s harder to get creases out. I always pop on some good music and iron along to it or a drama that I need to catch up on as it makes it less of a chore and never let it pile up or it becomes overwhelming

  123. sarah hutt
    18th July 2017 / 9:00 pm

    Get an iron with a good steam function on it to glide through the creases

  124. 19th July 2017 / 9:03 am

    Keeping on top of it,I’m terrible and always leave it til I have a massive pile lol

  125. Christine Caple

    I used to own a steam generator iron & it really was so much quicker & easier but my son dropped it! I only bought a normal steam iron as a replacement (in case he broke it again!) so my hack would be invest in a steam generator iron.

  127. James Harris
    20th July 2017 / 11:36 am

    My top ironing hack would be to do it in front of the television. It makes it much less boring.

  129. Farhana
